Meet Me in Manley

Manley Tire & Oil
JD Collins/KIKN via Sprint Sioux Falls

A service station where people would gather in the 1940’s to watch television, has continued to serve, and celebrate with the community.

I’m always interested in knowing the history of everything, and was intrigued by the amount of people who came to an event last year at Manley Tire & Oil.

According to the Manley Tire & Oil Website:

In the 1940s, Sam Bly started a service station called Sam’s. For the next thirty years this station was a landmark in this area, selling beer, televisions, and gas. Since television was new (and expensive) at the time, people would come from all over to watch TV at Sam’s.

This will be my second year attending the event in Manley, Minnesota, at Manley Tire & Oil.

I showed up last year and was blown away by the hospitality, and size of this food filled, fun filled, Manley celebration.

Inflatables for kids, live music, so much food, and the amount of people who showed up for a great time was incredible.

I knew I was in for something big when I saw the amount of homemade deserts being brought in, and the guys putting on parking vests to help direct traffic.

Looking forward to seeing the  Manley Tire & Oil crew, and people from all over Thursday.
